"The Kamo people see on TV and the one at the farm are different."

Limpopo-born former Shift presenter and chicken farmer Kamo Bombe (25) says she is doing well after the SABC1 show was canned.

“I don’t have anything yet on TV but I am still busy teaching agricultural classes to young women.”

In 2015, Kamo started chicken farming in Sibekom, west of Johannesburg. “I currently have 1 100 chickens that purely lay eggs at the farm. My place is a manageable one hectare but I am looking to expand and have 10 000 chickens by the end of 2017,” she says. Kamo says she has seven employees and being able to help their families is more rewarding than just looking pretty and sounding great on television. “Young people want to get into farming but they are too lazy to do the dirty work. The Kamo people see on TV and the one at the farm are different, I put on my boots and I work,” she says.
